Arguably the most fun regatta anywhere. It's small, it's friendly, and it's a learning experience for everyone involved. We're growing a culture of competitive sailing where none existed before. If you have any interest, come join the fun! Whether you want to try your hand at racing or helping as a volunteer, there is room for everyone.
We'll be sure to post any updates here. Also, here is a form letter you can use to decline any other events that might try to infringe on your summer boating schedule:
In August 2016 Fort Peck Sailing Club hosted their first week-long youth sailing school, named the Mobile Optimist Sailing School. The boats, coaches and program were all provided by the Alberta Sailing Association. Special thanks to event director John Cormack, and coaches Andrea, Finn and Caleb. Thanks to Fort Peck Marina for their generosity in offering their facilities. Thank you to those who donated scholarships, and especially thanks to all the kids and parents for investing your time in learning about sailing.
